About this Cook
I now have a blended family and am trying to combine traditional family favorites with new family traditions. It's a challenge as we come from different traditions.
My favorite things to cook
When I get the time I love to can fresh vegetables and fruits along with jams, fruit butters, and sauces.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother was a noted gourmet cook in our small midwestern town. We did NOT have meat and potatoes at every meal and five-can casserole was NOT in her lexicon, nor was jello salad or jello desert. However, I have come to appreciate the common dishes of my hometown as part of my heritage. Most people in Philadelphia have no idea of what lefse is or how to make it.
My cooking triumphs
Last Thanksgiving we had our entire blended family at our table for the first time in our own home. I had called everyone to find out what their favorite Thanksgiving dish was so that I could include it. I also needed to make it organic, vegetarian, and no nuts. Surprisingly it was a huge success. The free-range organic turkey blended will with the Tofurky.
My cooking tragedies
With the same Thanksgiving dinner I got a recipie for stuffing made in the crockpot. Wonderful time and space saving idea! Unfortunately it turned into something like a brown gruel. No one ate it.

Sicilian Spaghetti
I'm sorry but this was one of the worst pasta dishes I have ever made from this site. The amount of bread crumbs called for in the recipie far outweighed any of the other flavors. I couldn't even taste the anchovies which should tell you something. I will not make this recipie again.

Balsamic and Rosemary Grilled Salmon
This was an exceptional salmon dish. Absolutely delicious and easy and quick to prepare. My entire family loved this and asked me to make it again very soon. A good dish for company as well. I served this with fresh green beans and a simple salad. Wonderful!

Ultimate Roast Beef Blues Sandwich
This is a wonderful blend of flavors. Everyone in my family enjoyed this. However, I agree with other users that the roast beef should be warmed before assembling the sandwich. Otherwise I feel that the blue cheese flavor is too pungent. Will definitely make this again.
